Your best mates are the ones who give up their Sunday to help install an integrated fridge and freezer unit at #TDFopenhouse πŸ‘ thanks @jonagunn ! This epic fridge and all appliances in our kitchen are by @siemens , floorboards by @royaloakfloors πŸ‘Œ

thedesignfiles : @beneaththesun oh the imagery inside the cupboards is actually existing from the previous tenant! Re: the mammoth undertaking, well yes, but in actuality it's kind of equal to packing up someone's whole house, moving them out of their house for 2 weeks and putting their house together afterwards! At least this year we have had 6 months to do it all! When our lease ends on Dec 31 we will move out and take most of this stuff with us, the kitchen cabinets can be re-installed somewhere else (maybe at my new studio!?) and most other events such as the steel work , countertops, floorboards are not permanently fixed so we will be able to recycle them for future projects or return them to our sponsors. πŸ‘ we love a challenge! X
thedesignfiles : @anh2d2 correct! The kitchen has much more natural light than the bedroom, both are painted @duluxaus Mirage Blue. It looks completely different in different lighting! Sometimes looks dark grey, sometimes dusty blue... It's a beautiful colour! Good reminder to always do a test patch in the room you are planning to paint before committing to a colour! X
lev04art : Look at the kitchen colours!! @marnier0se @manny6170 @rubyfaundez
beneaththesun : Genius @thedesignfiles love how it's all looking x
anh2d2 : Thanks @thedesignfiles yes I've been through about 10 sample pots! But I think mirage blue (the last pot i have bought after seeing your bedroom post) is the one! It looks gorgeous but more toward the lighter side as we are basked in natural light. Still bold and beautiful :)
bbiitter : @blllle πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
thedesignfiles : @anh2d2 great to hear! Pop along to our event if you're in Melbourne to see this colour in person! it's on Dec 4th - 7th x

Each year we are overwhelmed with so much lovely support in the media for #TDFopenhouse ! one of our biggest supporters each year has been @leetranlam and the team at @insideoutmag - Thankyou guys for including us in your December issue, so grateful for your wonderful support once again! (This beautiful shot is my absolute fave from all our publicity pics! - our beautiful moody master bedroom featuring @duluxaus 'Mirage Blue' walls, @royaloakfloors French Grey herringbone floorboards, furniture by @jardanaustralia and circle shelf from @brideandwolf πŸ‘Œ) photo by @evegwilson x

tribalmodern : Gorgeous, love those moody blue/grey hues
victoria_lw : Love that wall colour
buntingbydesign : @brideandwolfe yay for you! xx
thedesignfiles : Oh sorry @brideandwolfe !
leetranlam : Whoa, thank you for the incredibly lovely shout-out! It's such a huge pleasure to get behind your great projects, Lucy! The way you always set higher limits for yourself - and then totally smash through them is a total inspiration! Can't believe you're basically building a place from scratch this year; wish I could teleport to Melbourne to see it in person, but will have to live vicariously through all the amazing Instagrams. Lots of luck and can't wait to see all the great results as they appear on my feed (filtered or not)!
leetranlam : Thank you, @theprojectagency - always amazing to work with and always too kind!
sanaholt : @thuthutran
luceoconnor : @unearthedgarden your shelves?

Every year over 5000 people visit #TDFopenhouse , which is why THIS YEAR we've decided it's time to harness your support for a good cause. We're asking each visitor to Open House for a gold coin donation for the @asrc1 ! The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Melbourne do the most incredible work supporting asylum seekers and refugees in our community, providing housing, food, legal aid and vital services to those desperately in need, right here in Melbourne. They receive no government funding at all. If every visitor to Open House pops $2.00 in one of these collection buckets , we will raise $10,000 for the ASRC Christmas appeal! Let's do it! πŸ‘Š thanks to @natturnbull and @anothergemma for making our collection buckets. X
